I have a custom made mahogany soprano by Rob Collins of Tinguitar. This ukulele has very a good sound and projects well. Rob’s instruments are hand crafted and good value for money. As an upgrade I asked for Planetary tuners and an extra fret. Check Rob’s blog to see if he has any ‘off the peg’ ukuleles available, or you can contact him directly to see order a ukulele made to your specifications.
Have a listen:
Here’s a little Joni Mitchell arrangement:
